Our Story

It's been a crazy journey. Here's the short version.

Who we are

We're a team of passionate filmmakers and engineers that will stop at nothing to build the finest, most intuitive camera gear on earth.

At the end of the day, we love seeing filmmakers create amazing stories with Rhino gear. We strive to create gear that is easy to master so you can spend more time telling your stories and less worrying about your tools.

We love gear, life, and beer. If you're ever in town, drop us a line and let's grab a brew.

How it started

2018

Ever since the original Rhino Slider, our dream has been to create an app-controlled multi-axis system that enables you to create mind-blowing content. We asked questions like, "Wouldn't it be nice if I could shoot day to night time-lapses", or "What if I could control my camera from my phone?", or "Why can't I change my focus during a slide?". Rhino Arc II is the culmination of our aspirations and the answers to all of our questions.



2017

After designing Motion and Arc, we wanted to take what we had learned and simiplify it down to an even easier to use and more compact slider: RŌV.

It features an integrated quick-release ball head and adjustable legs just like our pro line but for a fraction of the cost. It also comes with a smartphone mount that allows you to film with your phone if your main camera is already in use. 

2015

Hand-pushing your slider was a great way to get movement in your videos, but we realized that if you could control your motion with a motor the creative potential is limitless.

We launched Rhino Motion in 2015. It allowed you to shoot both real time moves and time-lapses without changing motors. It also had a built in battery that powered it for a full day of shooting.

Shortly after launching Rhino Motion we released Rhino Arc (ask us the story of Rhino Parallax sometime over a beer). Rhino Arc allows you to easily pan as you move down the track. It was another game-changer for us and has allowed us to keep developing the future of motion control.

 



2012

Before we launched Rhino Slider in 2012, most camera sliders were heavy, noisy, and cost more than your camera. Rhino Slider marked the first professional slider that was designed for the modern filmmaker that left room in your budget for more glass.

After launching Rhino Slider, we found an amazing community of filmmakers that aligned with our mission perfectly, our customers. They have been behind us through every success and failure. Without them, we wouldn't exist.

2011

In 2011 we launched our first product, Rhino Steady on Kickstarter. Back then, we had a dream to create easy to use filmmaking products but had no customers and no company (oh, we also had a blue cartoon Rhino for a logo). A little over a month later, we had our first customers and almost $80,000 to build a few hundred stabilizers and prototype for a new idea, Rhino Slider.
